Being busy collecting doesn't leave very much time to update the Rob's Poole Pottery website, so all my new finds I'll post on this blog, and for the main site follow the links on the right.

This YO pattern vase, shape number 202 was painted by Gertie Warren who worked at Poole from 1922 until 1927. It has a red clay body covered in a white clay slip, but has an unusual shiny surface glaze similar to that found on the grey slip covered pots that were made up until 1924. So I rekcon this vase dates to exactly 1924 and was the final stage of development before the the final Poole look that lasted for the next (and most significant) decade of production.
